Fourth Round (110th overall): Desmond Harrison, OT, West Georgia

This is a bit deeper than you’d like to see the Broncos attack the tackle position, but again you’re looking at the best possible values to fill your needs in this situation.

I don’t love the idea of adding Harrison in the fourth round, but when you look at certain traits that he brings to the table, I feel like he could be a player the Broncos really like.

He was one of the fastest offensive linemen at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, as was Garett Bolles a year ago. He comes from a somewhat troubled past, as does Bolles. He also has that nasty disposition in his game that I think the Broncos will covet.

The biggest question with Harrison is whether or not he can keep his weight up, as he checked into the Senior Bowl at 278 pounds before coming to the Combine and getting up to 292.

You obviously need tackles to be able to mirror speed in today’s game, but they also have to deal with a lot of power. Harrison has a long way to go before he’s a finished product, but he’s worth developing.
